Open to LWVPA Members and Their Guests


The Chicago Region Trees Initiative employs a holistic approach toward improving the urban forest and quality of life for Chicago region residents by identifying our local communities’  list of challenges (low canopy cover, high poverty, poor health, etc.) and opportunities (strong forestry program, remnant woodlands, community engagement, etc.). By recognizing challenges and opportunities at varying scales, strategies can be successfully tailored to improve the urban forest. 





Join our League members and their guests to learn how trees impact community health, how your own community’s master plan addresses canopy sustainability, and how we can improve urban forest health
and increase environmental equity across the Chicago region.
